In an article posted online, a security researcher has discovered malicious code embedded within the cameras offered for sale on Amazon website. The research Mike Olsen, has warned people buying stuff online from overseas has a big probability of having some malicious software installed.  Needless to say, we research the group on eBay and also found them selling there too. 

If the device's firmware links to this domain, malware can be downloaded and installed, potentially leading to unlawful surveillance and data theft.

The take-home from this is that any device, especially when it contains networking or Internet capabilities, can harbour threats to personal safety and data security, and while the average person is unlikely to do a full-scale code search, checking reviews and alerts for such products online is worthwhile -- even if the platform is trusted.

"Amazon stuff can contain malware," Olsen said.

ZDNet has reached out to Urban Security Group and will update if we hear back.
